The Immersive Experience

18 – 27 April 2019 | On board the QE2 | Dubai

It’s the roaring ’20s. Extravagance, indulgence, and endless parties.

Where better to bring this to life than Dubai?

 

But, The Great Gatsby didn’t become an American classic because it glorified an opulent life. It became a classic for its honest perspective on wealth, ambition, and power. It showed us hope. It showed us why we seek something beyond reach.

 

Gatsby: The Immersive Experience brings the full novel to life across 3 decks of the majestic QE2.

 

The parties and the drama. The hope and the loss. The love and the despair. Live it all.
Location : Queen Elizabeth 2, Mina Rashid, Dubai
Dates : 18 – 27 April 2019

Immersive

You determine the story. You follow your own path.

Characters are around every corner. The story is not told, it is discovered. Explore. Interact. 

 

An immersive experience engages all of your senses. You do not sit and watch. You dance and discover. 

 

Gatsby will take place across three decks of the QE2, rather than in a theatre. Bring comfortable shoes and be prepared to walk. Your experience is what you make it.
